Registration for MUNUC 36 is open now until October 13, 2023. Fill out this form to register your delegation!

Model United Nations of the University of Chicago (MUNUC) is a four-day academic conference that provides high-school students from around the world with the opportunity to meaningfully engage with contemporary world issues, polish public speaking and communication skills, and become more confident and articulate global citizens, under the mentorship of thoroughly trained and deeply passionate University of Chicago undergraduates.

Featuring 30 committees this winter, delegates will have the opportunity to explore every style of MUN and cover a wide variety of topics. MUNUC 36 will also host training workshops to teach essential skills for traditional and crisis formats, emphasizing our focus on learning over competition.

Whether this is your school's first or thirty-sixth MUNUC, we aim to make Model UN accessible to delegates of all backgrounds. Please find additional information on financial aid, fees, and registration by visiting our website at munuc.org.
